    Hayward sp711-13 multivalve

    Anyone have experience repairing a Hayward sp711-13 multivalve key assembly? Mine seems to be developing tiny cracks in the notches where the key lever fits to select the various settings (backwash, rinse , waste, etc...). It's about 7-8 years old.
    I rebuilt the valve (new o rings and spider gasket) and then found the tiny crack was actually where the leaking was occuring. I notice that some of the other notches are beginning to crack, too.

    Can I use epoxy inside the valve (inexpensive) to reinforce the key notches, or should I just replace the whole assembly(much more costly)?
    What do you guys think?
    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Temporarily, you could get away with the epoxy, but in the end, it will eventually need replacement. I believe this is a replacement for your valve. The price isn't bad either.
